Why See Joe Turner's Come and Gone?
Set in the year 1911, this is the second play in August Wilson's towering 10-part, decade-by-decade account of African-American lives in Pittsburgh.
The great migration of African-Americans from the farms of the South to the cities of the North is captured in this drama of folks passing through a Pittsburgh boarding house in 1911. One of them is on a special quest, to find a mystical "Shining Man." When a threatening stranger arrives, he suspects his quest may be at an end.
